New Work

Photographs long used for inspiration and composition are becoming an integral part of my work, most recently being printed onto fabric on which I manipulate the ink receptive coating to suggest the aging process.

I have been captivated by the saga of the slow dismantling of the Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth, NH. and have been documenting photographically the decaying process as it has unfolded over a period of several years. This body of work has provided the opportunity to explore combining familiar techniques with ones that are newer to me in order to create a memorial honoring the span that connected people, towns and states for so long. In so doing I celebrate the beauty to be found in the patina of age and look forward to discovering what will fill the gap between the empty spaces.
